Paper Kids

Sometimes it's the easiest projects that are the most fun. I picked up a roll of paper at IKEA for the kids. It's designed to go on an easel but I just tear off pieces as needed. Today I rolled out a LONG piece and had each of the kids lay down on the paper. I traced each of their bodies on the paper and gave them the markers. They had a ball scribbling on their paper selves. My oldest wanted me to draw Hello Kitty on her paper self so it matched the shirt she was wearing. Don't criticize my artistic skills (or lack therof). :) Even the youngest had a ball crawling on the paper and picking up stray markers. Just goes to show that good ol' fashioned paper and markers are still a great activity for kids!
